This guide will walk you through the steps of port forwarding on Vigor2130 series Firmware V1.5.1 router.
Step 1: Open up your favorite browser and go to the router’s default gateway address.
- http://192.168.1.1 (Default Address)
Step 2: Login to the router.
- Default Username: admin
- Default password: admin (or blank)
Step 3: Once you have logged in go to “NAT” then select “Open Ports” and click “Add New Entry”.
Step 4: Check “Enable”. For “Name” choose a name for the service (small description eg. web, camera, xbox, etc.). Be sure to set “Protocol” to “TCP+UDP”. “WAN IP” is the IP address your ISP (Internet Service Provider) assigns you.“Start Port” is the port you wish to open and “End Port” is the port you wish it to end at. “Local Host” is the Internal IP address that you wish the port be open on. “Local Port” is the port leading to the machine on your home network.
Once you save the settings you should now be able to test your port at www.portchecktool.com. Please keep in mind your ISP (Internet Service Provider) can be blocking certain ports such as port 80, 25 and 21. You can call and ask if they are. If you are still not able to see the ports check your firewall and anti-virus software on your computer.
Here is an example. You have a webcam that has the IP address 192.168.1.100 and it runs on port 80. You want to be able to access this camera from outside your network on port 8080. You would enter the below values into port forwarding page.
- Enabled = Checked
- Protocol = TCP+UDP
- WAN IP = Your Public IP Address
- Start Port = 8080
- End port = 8080
- Local Host = 192.168.1.100
- Local Port = 80
Then to view the camera you would use your No-IP host of “somehost.no-ip.com” like this: http://somehost.no-ip.com:8080 to reach the webcam.
